Heat pumps are double-duty systems that cool your home in summer and warm it up in winter. The best thing about heat pumps is that they’re remarkably energy efficient.

An air source heat pump cools like a traditional air conditioner. However, by way of a reversing valve, a heat pump can switch from cooling mode to heating mode. These systems make sense economically in cities like Largo, Clearwater and Saint Petersburg with gentle winters and hot, sticky summers.
Heat pumps provide heat effectively in temperatures as low as 30°F. If it gets any colder, you'll need to supplement with another heating source. Heat pumps use refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. Unlike furnaces, they don't generate heat, and that's why they're so efficient.

Heat pumps are installed outside and then hooked up to an existing furnace or air handler indoors. Your technician will explain the system operation after the installation is complete. The new heat pump will need maintenance once a year if it’s used for both heating and cooling. If it’s only used in cooling or heating mode, then a maintenance visit every two years would be sufficient.

These HVAC systems have a higher initial install cost than air conditioners, but they come with benefits, too:
- Lower Energy Bills: The most efficient furnaces have effective efficiencies of 98 percent. Heat pumps have effective efficiencies of 300 percent. Many heat pumps also come with programmable thermostats for even more efficient operation.
- Green Heating Source: Furnaces generate heat by burning fuel. Heat pumps generate heat by extracting it from outdoor air -- a renewable energy source. Pumps are also safer than furnaces, and they require less maintenance than other HVAC systems.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality: In the process of generating fuel, furnaces can emit by-products that invade indoor air. Heat pumps filter out pollutants as air is circulated through the system. Pumps also dehumidify better than traditional air conditioners.
